I share this because it could happen to you and you will be screwed in peak season. I made a reservation here as the price is reasonable and prefer to spend more at the nice restaurants in Puerto Viejo. However when we arrived and asked for the reservation one looked at me as if my skin was green, I arrived... More

I want this to be a fair review so in no way does Luna Negra deserve more than 3 stars and neither can I offer it any less since it does offer the necessary accommodations in a place (Puerto Viejo) where hot water is a luxury. Firstly, I'd like to classify Luna Negra as a B&B but there was no... More

I loved Le Blanc! It is close to the center of town but far enough removed that it's peaceful for tired travelers. Also, the owners are incredibly helpful, generous, and kind. I definitely recommend it!

Josep and Carme are wonderful and charming people who bend over backwards to help in many ways. I enjoyed my stay at the Le Blanc and recomend it to all. Just across the road is a very nice beach and great swimming place. Beautiful garden setting. Thank you for a great stay.

We stayed for two nights at Le Blanc Hotel. Its location is very pleasant right next to the beach and we enjoyed especially our breakfasts on the terrace with a stunning view. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the cabinas need to be refreshed and although a mosquito net is provided, there are a lot of mosquitos during... More

Some people enjoy dodgy hostels, parties, expats and constant traffic - if you rather go for a peaceful, laid-back caribbean paradise experience, I warmly recommend hotel Le Blanc. Amazing prize/quality ratio, perfect location, lovely little rooms and the beach just a couple of meters away. It's more quiet than in downtown, which is definitely a positive thing in a busy...
